I am sorry, but I cannot allow people to perpetuate this lie unchallenged. McCain would have done little to help the economy, but he wouldn’t have spent our kids’ money on a wasted stimulus package full of pork, OBAMACARE would NOT have passed, he would be standing with Israel, he would not have decimated NASA, nor would he have cut defense spending—I could go on and on....

If you stayed home and didn’t vote because McCain wasn’t conservative enough, and we got this asshat for a president as a result, stop trying to placate your guilt by repeating this mantra. Things would not have been this bad with McCain. If you want to do a line by line comparison of things this president has done that McCain would never have done, I’m sure we can provide it for you. Say what you will about McCain’s RINO status. McCain is an American war hero. Obama is ... in so many ways...not even “American.”

Agreed, and most importantly, McCain may have had 2 SC appts to make. Who knows whether Souter and/or Stevens retires with McCain in the WH instead of Obama. I’m guessing at least one of them would have(especially given the dem advantage in the Senate). Also, he’d have allowed Scalia and/or Kennedy to retire without having to pray that they can outlast Obama. He could have established a solid conservative 5 man majority for the next decade at least. A solid SC appt by McCain alone would be worth his having won and in the long term would have far, far more influence on the nation as a whole than just about anything else.
